Asda Tea Lights
Advantages: They have got a strong flame and burn well
Disadvantages: The metal cups are thin
WHAT IS IT?
A bag of 100 plain tealights from Asda. They cost less than £2 for a bag and each tealight burns for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
WHAT I USE THEM FOR
I usually use these tealights with my Yankee Candle Petal tart burner and use at least four every day like this. I also put them into tealight holders for a nice relaxing effect at night and I use six every evening so that means a bag of 100 tealights will only last me for about ten days. That's why I buy these now instead of the Yankee Candle tealights that I used to buy before I had my children and we had more free money.
WHAT I THINK
I think these are good tealights and are identical to ones I use from Sainsbury's when I am not going to an Asda store. They are in small metal holders and these feel quite flimsy but hold the wax tight for the length of time that the tealight burns for. I like that the wicks are quite short because that makes lighting them easy and makes sure the tealights burn evenly.
The flame is strong and my wax tarts start melting as soon as I place the tealight under it. When the tealight is starting to go out the flame gutters a bit but this isn't dangerous and when it starts happening I know the tealight is going to extinguish itself in a few minutes. There is no smell at all to the tealights but when I have got a few lit in the same area they create a nice twinkly glow.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: These are very good tealights and cheap
